NOTE: The house above right has a structure on top, which is called a "Widow's Walk. When the fishermen went to sea and time for their return came closer, the wives of these men would go to the small rooms and watch for the ships. And since so many of these men were lost at sea, these structures became known as Widow's Walks.

The Highland Light at Truro on Cape Cod, MA
Another view of the highland light looking in from the sea. The
views from here are magnificent. I stood next to the marker in
the next photo to take this one. The dirt path running to the left
is for golf carts. Yeah, it's on a golf course. The original light,
which stood from 1857 to 1996, was replaced due to the erosion
of the original site, which occupied ten acres. Now only three
acres of the original site remain. The ocean knows no boundaries,
no limits. It is relentless. There is a museum here where you
can see the history of the Cape Cod Highland Light.

The Essex Salt Marsh
Part of the "Great Marsh" covering 17,000 acres.
It extends from Cape Ann into New Hampshire.
These unique ecosystems support numerous plants and animals.
The Low Marsh is flooded twice daily by the tides.
The High Marsh is flooded only sporadically.
Salt marshes contain tidal creeks, pools, and islands of high ground, and serve as highly efficient pollution filters. Nationwide, vast areas of salt marsh have been destroyed by filling, dredging and developing upland areas. The Great Marsh has escaped much of this destruction, but is impacted by pollution runoff and by road and rail crossings which restrict tidal flows to upstream marshes.
